Guest Reviews:
Fabulous weekend away, beautiful grounds, wondrous for kids to discover the fairy door. Plenty of adventures on the trails. Friendly and knowledgeable care taker.

"Lovely place for a big family. Beautiful surroundings."
Franklin, September 2014

"This experience is one of the most amazing farm-stay places you will encounter. They have thought of everything to make your stay a home away from home destination, suitable for either cosy families or large groups. They welcome you warmly and have a "nothing is too much trouble" attitude. We will be back! We loved it!"
Peter, July 2014

 Perfect place for a family reunion. Children loved the tree house and animals. Adults loved couches and long tables for lazy lunches. We loved the house, the beds, the rooms, the cups, the coffee machine and the incredible gardens! Highlands Holidays were very helpful and efficient.

We had a wonderful family weekend in such lovely, serene surroundings. There was much laughter and even tears of joy in celebrating mum's 70th birthday, it couldn't have been more perfect! The kids put down their iPad and iPod for the weekend and ran and played outside until dark! They loved the tyre swing and the farm animals, they even had a game of cricket with the big kids!
